Most Popular Cat Breeds

The number of pedigreed registered cats is huge. Two of the major cat registries who maintain statistics on the breeds they register are the Cat Fanciers' Association, Inc. (CFA) and The International Cat Association (TICA). Each registry determines which breeds they accept. There is some duplication of accepted breeds but there are differences. For example, CFA does not register Bengals but TICA does.

CFA's top five most popular cat breeds for 2011 are:
1. Persian
2. Exotic
3. Maine Coon
4. Ragdoll
5. Sphynx

TICA's top five most popular cat breeds for 2010 are:
1. Bengal
2. Ragdoll
3. Maine Coon
4. Savannah
5. Sphynx

Let us know if they got the order right in your opinion. If your favorite breed of cat is not there, tell us what it is and why.
